Phil Margolin - Matter of Life and Death


Watch This Event on YouTube


Saturday July 17 at 5:00 PM Phil Margolin will present, A Matter of Life and Death, the latest in his New York Times bestselling Robin Lockwood series set in Portland Oregon. It is great to have an author who presents his female characters as strong, courageous, and intelligent.  Robin is a bad woman to cross and a good advocate to have in your corner.

Phil Margolin gave our last in person author event in 2020 and this is our first in person event in 2021, since Covid-19 made in person events difficult. We are grateful to Phil Margolin in so many ways.  Sunriver Books & Music will be closed during the presentation.  Audience members must be vaccinated.  Purchase of A Matter of Life and Death is required to receive a ticket for admittance to the event.  Space will be limited to 25.  We thank you for your understanding as we resume in person events cautiously. 

Phil Margolin brings rich life experiences to his writing. He grew up in New York, fell under the spell of Perry Mason, deciding that was what he wanted to do with his life.  In 1970 he served in the Peace Corps in Liberia, Africa. To make his way through law school, Phil taught junior high school in the South Bronx.  He achieved his goal, becoming a criminal defense lawyer, representing defendants in death penalty cases and appearing before the US Supreme Court.  When Phil Margolin writes a legal thriller, he has a lifetime of experience to get it just right!  

A Matter of Life and Death has all of the surprise twists we expect in any book by Phil Margolin. Robin Lockwood is tough as nails, and she needs to be, in her latest case defending a boxer who has all the evidence stacked against him! The DA has a wheelbarrow full of evidence, all pointing to her client’s guilt.  But Robin believes Joe Lattimore when he says he didn’t kill Judge Anthony Carasco’s wife.

Joe Lattimore was homeless and living rough with his wife and child when he was recruited for a job that would put a roof over their heads.  Taking that job is the first step down a slippery slope into a living nightmare that might just conclude with the death penalty.

Robin teams up with Amanda Jaffe, a dream team of defense lawyers. Can they find a way to prove Joe’s innocence despite the mountain of evidence against him? Read it and find out, this legal thriller will keep you turning pages. Margolin uses the Portland settings beautifully. I thoroughly enjoyed this latest in the Robin Lockwood series, especially with Amanda Jaffee included too!

Phil Margolin writes great legal thrillers! He also gives interesting presentations.  Join us for a fun evening.
